This is one of the best fried, baked chicken recipes that I have tried on this food site. Thank you so much for sharing this quick and easy to make recipe. The chicken was perfection, cooked beautifully, tender, moist and oh so flavorful. I used drumsticks and thighs this time, can't wait to try this with breasts also. For the cracker crumb I used the garlic ritz. Made exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. Kudos on making it into Favorites of 2014 Cookbook. Made for Best of 2013 Tag Game.

Looked and tasted just like Fried Chicken! Used Perdue bone-in skin-on chicken thighs, which fit into my 5-quart deep frying skillet snugly. I followed Baby Kato's lead and made crumbs from 18 Garlic-Butter Ritz crackers. Will definitely make these again and again! Made for Best of 2013 tag game, based on LifeIsGood's recommendation.

This was amazing! The BEST fried chicken recipe I've ever found. The only thing I did different was double the amount of crumbs, as I went through them faster than I expected. The flavor and moisture was to DIE for. :D
